Adobe Announces Subscription-Only Lightroom Mobile for iPad, iPhone

Adobe Lightroom for iOS

Adobe has heard the call from its users, and it’s bringing Lightroom to mobile devices, beginning with the iPad and coming soon to iPhone. The Lightroom mobile app offers the ability to work with RAW photos as you can on the desktop version, as well as smartphone and mobile images to get the most out of those shots you take on the fly. It automatically syncs with Lightroom 5 on the desktop, but there’s a catch – you need to be a Creative Cloud subscriber to take advantage of what Lightroom mobile has to offer, so owners of boxed copy Lightroom software are out of luck. Making Lightroom mobile a Cloud Service exclusive is clearly a selling tactic – Adobe knows people have been asking for this for a while now. But it offers a lot of great features for the price it incurs, too. As mentioned, it syncs all changes to your desktop automatically, and it works with almost any image format you might come across.
